Good Morning, New York Giants fans!
Another Eli Manning homer has surfaced! His name is Golden Tate, newly acquired receiver for the Giants. Is he a homer or does he simply think Eli can still get the job done?
Tate commented that Manning sees the game extremely well and still has a strong arm…should we believe him or cough it up as friendly teammate chatter. Eli has always been a quality quarterback in the slant-game and on short post-routes. I imagine Tate will be a major benefactor of that reality.
Extending Sterling Shepard should further indicate that head coach Pat Shurmur wants to utilize the slot-position more frequently in his second season running the offense. Both Tate and Shep can play inside and out, which will create unpredictability and open up the field for Eli.
Additionally, I’m very excited to see the play-action in full form. A poor offensive line hurt Manning’s ability to properly carry out an effective play-action simply because he didn’t have much time to scan the field. Adding Kevin Zeitler and Mike Remmers should increase his efficiency from the pocket. His overall production should actually see a jump because of the line, something general manager Dave Gettleman prioritized this offseason.
